Americans may be all over Kim Kardashian, but in Canada we only have eyes for our boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

Kanye West's main squeeze claimed the No. 1 spot on Bing's annual list of the most searched people, with Bieber scooting into the No. 2 spot. But things were a little different north of the border: On Bing.ca's 2012 roundup, it was the Canadian "Boyfriend" singer who came out on top, with the 32-year-old reality star being relegated to third place, behind pop star Miley Cyrus.

The lists, released on Tuesday, come at the perfect time for the Biebs, who could use some good news. The 18-year-old Ontario native has been having a rough week after being mocked for meeting the Canadian prime minister in overalls, followed by a mass booing prior to his performance at the 100th Grey Cup celebration on Sunday.

Meanwhile, it's little surprise that Kardashian is queen of U.S. searches, considering that this was the year she got together with another A-lister (rapper Kanye West) and that she has made it a habit of tweeting pictures of herself in skimpy swimwear.

While Kardashian slipped down two spots after topping the Bing.ca list last year, Bieber's on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez and fashionable princess Kate Middleton, who found herself in the midst of a topless photo controversy this year, rounded out the top five people Canadians were searching in 2012.

As for the American list, Cyrus climbed seven spots to the No. 3 position (after landing at No. 10 in 2011), while Rihanna and troubled actress Lindsay Lohan rounded out the top five.
